The Perfect Catch is an upcoming 2016 romantic sports comedy-drama film directed by Marc Webb and written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber.

The film stars an ensemble cast including Jennifer Aniston, Annette Bening, Bradley Cooper, Rob Corddry, Josh Gad, John Goodman, Kelsey Grammer, John Heard, Allison Janney, Scarlett Johansson, Ellie Kemper, Anna Kendrick, John Leguizamo, Nick Offerman, Chris Pratt, Liev Schreiber, Amy Schumer, Olivia Wilde, and Rebel Wilson.


It's fall 2003 in Massachusetts. When attractive business executive Lindsey Meeks and high school math teacher Ben Wrightman meet, he asks her out on a date, and she accepts, thinking he'll be a nice departure from the competitive and successful men she usually goes out with. The two seem to hit it off and end up developing a romantic relationship. When summer arrives, Ben reveals something she doesn't know about him: he's a hardcore fan of the Boston Red Sox. His passion borders on obsession, right down to his apartment looking like a Red Sox gift shop. Initially, Lindsey likes Ben's ability to show a passionate commitment to something, but when the team gets closer to the playoffs, they must decide if they, as a couple, will strike out or fight to keep their love alive.
